LoRa and LoRaWAN Timing

Written by David Meaney, Vice President of Global Technical Sales and Marketing

LoRa (Long-Range) is digital wireless data communication IoT technology. LoRa transmits over license-free megahertz radio frequency bands: 169 MHz, 433 MHz (Asia), 868 MHz (Europe) and 915 MHz (North America). LoRa enables very-long-range wireless data transmission. LoRa communications can be made at ranges of ten miles or more in rural areas, using low power. LoRa can achieve this by narrowing the bandwidth.

The laws of physics dictate that in order to transmit over a longer distance, you either need to increase the power or reduce the bandwidth. For more information on LoRa technology follow this link.

Contingent on the configuration of your LoRa radios and how many nodes and gateways you will use, you will need one or more clocks at different frequencies and stabilities. ECS Inc. has many products specifically engineered to meet these requirements. Listed below are some of the more commonly used clocks in LoRa applications. If you have special requirements, we have many other solutions to help complete the Long-Range wireless network.
